How do you raise thoughtful, caring, emotionally healthy children? And how do you do it in the face of struggle? If you’re a parent, no doubt these are questions you’ve asked yourself countless times.
So for our latest webinar, we invited longtime friend and MIF board member Joy Thomas Moore and Pittsburgh Foundation President Maxwell King to offer their insights on those questions and more. Both Moore and King have recently published books that offer wonderful insights on engaged parenting and early childhood development.
Moore, who has endured and overcome many obstacles throughout her single parenting journey, has beautifully packaged the lessons she has learned in her new book, The Power of Presence: Be a Voice in Your Child’s Ear Even When You’re Not With Them.
King’s new book, The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers, chronicles the life and work of Fred Rogers, who sought to foster compassion, equality and kindness in the lives of the tens of millions of children who tuned in to his show. Rogers was one of the most influential champions of early childhood development and was loved and respected for his fierce devotion to childrens’ fears, concerns and questions about the world. He also believed there was no substitute for parent-child time.
